The Doctrine of Spiritism first revealed to the world that heaven wasn’t a destination of eternal leisure. No luxurious gardens to wander around with other angels, strolling aimlessly forever. Instead heaven is a place of work and constant learning. Read More.
Our life is one of eternal learning. One of our vital characteristics we should emphasize is our enjoyment of discovery. For this attribute will propel us into realms and kingdoms which are beyond any of our fantasies.
Children learn, even in heaven. But they also need time to play. Their games are different from the games earthly children play. From a book, a collection of messages from various spirits to the Rev. G. Vale Owen, describes games that could have been lifted from a fantasy series about young magicians. The games are more concentrated upon the mind than the body.
The spirit Arnel who was visiting the seventh level of heaven, was at a school for advanced children, ranging from an equivalent earth years from about eight to eighteen. Arnel wish to convey the games that children played, so readers in the physical world could discern the differences between life locked in dense matter and life lived in love and energy. Read More.
The spirit Arnel explains that atoms are made up of ethereal matter vibrating and spiraling along different paths. Atoms in our physical world are created from elements which originated in the spirit realm. This ether (also named Universal Fluid, in Spiritist literature), is moved, directed, and guided by a force … mind-waves from spirits. Read More.
All spiritual power is based on love. Zabdiel describes the power of love when he tells about Jesus coming to a temple in the tenth level of heaven. The event was important and dramatic. It affected everyone who was present. Zabdiel describes a Jesus we don’t see in the New Testament … a Jesus in charge, a powerful spirit, yet not in brute force, but grand in love. Read More.
We, in physical form, on earth, forget the multitude of souls who are trapped in a narrow band on or near the surface. These are spirits who wander the Lower Zone. They haven’t the spiritual fortitude to understand how to ascend to the first level of heaven, where they will be safe and supported. Instead, they are subjected to cruelties and injustices that stretch our imagination. Read More.
“The Great Gate of this Palace is of liquid stone. That is quite literally to be read. The stone was not solid, but in flux; and the colors of the gate changed from moment to moment, affected both by what went forward within the House, and also by what was agait upon the Plain before it. It also was affected from the Watchtowers on the Plain; but only by those on this side, not by others on the other side of the City, which were in touch with stations on the other sides of the Palace. It was very beautiful to look at, that gateway, massive on either side and blending into the wall of the main structure, solid above the square arch, and changing in beauty as the colors changed. One part only was constant, and that was the great keystone, in the middle above, which always and ever shone red for love.” Read More.
Zabdiel, the spirit who resides in the tenth level of heaven, was given a task by the Chief Angel Lord of the tenth sphere. He was told only to journey, with three other spirits to the capital city of the fifth sphere. Upon arrival he was to present himself to the Chief of the city. Read More.
According to Zabdiel, above the tenth level is where spirits start to actively participate in the creative process to lead and effect changes in our planet and any other locations a spirit may be sent to. Only after, many lifetimes of trials on earth, and multiple demonstrations of being able to fulfill missions of importance, would a spirit be able to graduate to such an exalted pinnacle. Read More.
